Mobile Draft...


So let's pick-up the story from where we left of. 
It's still 2012 - We were at Tasuleasa Social - as the previous video showed - doing a very nice open air concert. I'll refere a lot to WE - as a band - since well, We've been up to things lately. 
 
Right before that, with no question asked - I was watching this girl being bodypainted somewhere in Barceona. The rest is silent.

And while preparing for the major event of launching the 1st album with Robin (above) And The Backstabbers - I ended up in a famous night club. A lovely Italian girl insisted to lose her flight that very morning.

The lead of infamous band The Constantines - due to which existence  our band came to be had the kindness to join us on stage for our album launch. 
Here's Bry Webb (Right) -between our Stalingrad themed barbwired stage equipment, sand bags and the rest - sound check for the first concert of the tour.  What an amazing dude. Yeah - Florin (right) is happy  to share the moment.

Dragging our shadows in our way to Cluj - for our 2nd sold out concert. Thank you all.

If you know a bit of our outdoor campaign, you know that we launched the album in the mid of elections. S touring the country we got to see some other shows destined to link the art with the masses - in somehow different ways and with different purpose. 
Here's a stop-by from our trip.

And on our return to Bucharest - we were nominated at Elle Style Awards - here's part of our entry to the event :)

Soon after, I find myself in Guangzhou - China - and looking upon their biggest tower. 
What ? I can do a free fall on top of that tower? 
Umm.. i'll have two tickets please. Yes.. both for me! Shie Shie! 

Photobucket

Hey Bumblebee - see that tower behind you?  That antenna ? I "jumped" from that. Piece of cake :) .

Back in Bucharest - time to make new friends.

I got back from China on X-mass day. Few days later I was deep into the Transylvanian mountains - 70km away from the nearest gas station. No cell reception. No electricity. Lovely people and amazind surroundings. Here are some snaps from there and from the trips.

Passionate followers of this blog (no worry there is no one) will remember these places form previous posts.

Umm... half way of the trip - I ran out of gas. I had to find the lady running a very remote gas station - knock on her door, ask her to come and serve me some gas. Not much... just few litters...

Ahh... nothing like a good read in the woods...

I haven't had time to draw/paint - music and the job and the other projects take all of my brain power. 
I manged to sketch here and there - mostly stupid stuff in Robin's notes book - among poetry ideas and random texts (I can get his handwriting - so everything seems random to me in that book)  
Those drawings will be his to show - here's just a reminder (for self) that I once was MAD about drawing/painting - and that as soon as i free myself up (yeah right) I should take a week and paint until I go colorblind.

Now it's gettign a new engine and soem fancy treatment. Oh, I can't wait. 
Did i tell you that my SnowPatrolCar is also dismantled to pieces ? Why? Umm.. i don't remember but I hope she gets back on her wheels soon.

So, without much DADA, i excuse myself again for the lack of updates. I'm flying to London in few hours - so I'm not sure when I get to post again - but you take care and drop a note if you feel like. 
Visit the Facebook page for more crap and the Robin's And The Backstabbers page too .. and.. see you around. 
Thx for looking.
